Named after two historic Lawrenceburg, Indiana, distilleries – Rossville Distillery and W.P. Squibb & Co. – Ross & Squibb Distillery has a reputation for producing unique, high-quality ryes and high-rye bourbons dating back to 1847. Rye whiskey saw the peak of its popularity leading up to Prohibition and today is steadily gaining in popularity.

Commenting on the launch, Ian Stirsman, Master Distiller at Ross & Squibb Distillery, said: “With Remus Highest Rye Bourbon, our team pays tribute to Ross & Squibb Distillery’s rye tradition by selecting a mash bill that features the most rye a bourbon can offer. This bourbon delivers a sweet, rich fruit and maple aroma and a palate containing robust candied-fruit notes, followed by a lingering finish highlighted by notes of spicy cinnamon and saddle leather.”

Remus Highest Rye Bourbon, will be available in the UK from January 2024, for a RRP of £59.99.
